Statement by Rep. Four Price on Senate Bill 1234
"Today the Texas House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 1234, a truancy prevention measure by Senator John Whitmire, with a solid vote of 145 - 3. I am honored to sponsor this bill and am privileged to work on a measure that will help Texas public schools keep more kids in the classroom. The passage of Senate Bill 1234 is due in large part to the strong and cohesive effort by numerous stakeholders. I want to thank the following stakeholders for their work: the Texas School Alliance, Fast Growth School Coalition, Texas Association of School Boards, Texas Association of School Administrators, Texas Association for Truancy and Dropout Prevention, County Judges & Commissioners Association of Texas, Texas Conference of Urban Counties, Texas Association of Counties, and the Texas Municipal League."
